    My leukemia's back.

    This is Rae. June of 2014 I think. Just after initial diagnosis and the start of chemotherapy. She didn't want her hair falling out slowly, so she took the clippers to it!

    My leukemia's back.

    Hi every buddy! This is sugar monkey, typing in for my mom. She asked me to come and give you all an update. She is back home on Hospice; now we're just waiting for her to go see Jesus. She's not having much pain, so that's a good thing, but she has no vision and that's very frustrating. "I...

    A rooster? And this is NOT a buff Orpington!

    Both blue birds look to be cockerels. The white bird is a Delaware Pullet.

    Hey all. Had a bit of a rough time. Of all things, it started with a spot of athletes foot at my little toe. Well, when you have zero immune system, that bit of nothing turns your foot to a purple throbbing thing that is so exquisitely tender no one can touch it. IV Vancomycin is brought in...

    My leukemia's back.

    Guesses on This Hen?

    She looks to be a classic Barnyard Mix. Likely a mix of mixes, with the wavy comb, mixed coloring and dark legs. Looks like she's a good Momma? That would make her a keeper in my book!
